Bill Houlihan in 1955 Parade

WEEK Weatherman in 1955 Eureka Parade

I was going through my father's slides, James Ware, and found these in a tray marked "1955". These pictures were taken at a parade in Eureka, IL in 1955 probably during a July 4th celebration. Bill is driving a 1920 Nash. WEEK would have only been on the air for two years at the time of these photos. My parents watched WEEK on a 14" Motorola television set that Dad purchased in 1951.
